A figurative painter, I work mainly in oils, en plein air whenever possible, as nothing beats the experience of painting outdoors. I grew up in rural West Sussex and the South Downs are a favourite subject. I walk every day with my dogs and always have my sketchbook and camera with me for when inspiration strikes.
I also enjoy screen and lino-printing. With the printmaking process there is time to experiment and opportunities for combining techniques and introducing other media, so there is always an element of surprise – which can be stimulating and frustrating in equal measure!
